Is my child too sick for school?
When your child is sick, the decision of whether or not to send them to school may be a difficult one. Here are a few guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics that may help when faced with this dilemma.

{C}· {C}Fever: If you child has a temperature of 100 degrees or greater, please keep them home. This is usually signals a contagious illness. Children should be fever free (without fever reducing medication) for 24 hours before returning to school.

{C}· {C}Vomiting: If your child has vomited within the last few hours and has no appetite, they are probably not up for a day of classes.

{C}· {C}Diarrhea: If your child is having loose stools they will not be comfortable at school.

{C}· {C}Runny nose: This symptom alone is not a reason for children to stay home from school…However, if there are other flu-like symptoms (fever, thick discolored nasal discharge) this may be more than just a common cold.

{C}· {C}Sore throat: If a sore throat is moderate to severe or not relieved by a drink, they should probably stay home.
